- In an earlier lesson we talked about…how to remember dates.…In this video,…we'll talk about remembering other types of numbers.…There are several ways to do this.…If your number is seven or 10 digits long…you could turn it into a phone number.…A seven digit number might be 8574747…but you can turn that into a phone number, 857-4747.…Repeat that to yourself until it gets easy to remember…or imagine yourself dialing that number on your phone…or if you had to remember a number in the billions…like 3,128,574,747 you can turn this into a 10 digit number…like a phone number, with an area code.…
